Let's play

I hear them call out my name,

I hear them call out my name, Their voices far away.

Someone pulls me out,

Someone pulls me out, I lay gasping on the cold floor,

Someone pulls me out, I lay gasping on the cold floor, Beside the bath tub.

Someone pulls me out, I lay gasping on the cold floor, Beside the bath tub. I don't utter a word.

Someone wraps a towel around my shivering body,

Someone wraps a towel around my shivering body, Someone carries me towards my bed,

Someone wraps a towel around my shivering body, Someone carries me towards my bed, Someone tries to talk to me.

Someone wraps a towel around my shivering body, Someone carries me towards my bed, Someone tries to talk to me. My eyes staring blank.

Someone kisses my forehead,

Someone kisses my forehead, Someone tells me it will be ok,

Someone kisses my forehead, Someone tells me it will be ok, Someone turns off the light,

Someone kisses my forehead, Someone tells me it will be ok, Someone turns off the light, Someone shuts the door.

Every detail etched,

Every detail etched, As I stare, numb,

Every detail etched, As I stare, numb, At the ceiling.

The cold hands that pulled me under,

The cold hands that pulled me under, As I twisted and thrashed,

The cold hands that pulled me under, As I twisted and thrashed, Those hands never let go.

Water filled my lungs,

Water filled my lungs, My heart,

Water filled my lungs, My heart, The slimy hands violating my body.

They never listen,

They never listen, The never did,

They never listen, The never did, "You're too old to be afraid of water",

They never listen, The never did, "You're too old to be afraid of water", Every single time.

They never believed,

They never believed, For they've never seen the lady in white,

They never believed, For they've never seen the lady in white, Her dark hair floating around,

They never believed, For they've never seen the lady in white, Her dark hair floating around, The tendrils coiling around me.

They never understand,

They never understand, Those watery hands always waiting,

They never understand, Those watery hands always waiting, That one day,

They never understand, Those watery hands always waiting, That one day, It won't let go.

They never understand,

They never understand, The water still covers my lungs,

They never understand, The water still covers my lungs, Settles like a second skin,

They never understand, The water still covers my lungs, Settles like a second skin, As it slowly tries to reach me.

They never listen,

They never listen, That everytime the door shuts,

They never listen, That everytime the door shuts, She whispers,

They never listen, That everytime the door shuts, She whispers, "Let's play

They never listen, That everytime the door shuts, She whispers, "Let's play.

They never listen, That everytime the door shuts, She whispers, "Let's play..

They never listen, That everytime the door shuts, She whispers, "Let's play..."

They never listen, That everytime the door shuts, She whispers, "Let's play..."
